Rescue a DNT DigiMicro C11 Digital Microscope from scrap

Posted on 18. December 2015 in low voltage experiments

There is a very simple way to get an old DNT DigMicro C11 camera working in Windows 8.1. The company DNT has moved on with a newer products like the “DigiMicro Scale 2.0” link to product page , but stopped support for older products. Unfortunately the newer software does not recognize the old hardware, so i found a way to make this product working on a modern system (W8.1).

In the device manager, the camera hardware id was detected as:

USB\VID_0C45&PID_6270&REV_0101
USB\VID_0C45&PID_6270

The valid driver for this camera is “SN9C201” from Sonix Inc.
download the driver file (USB20PCCam_5.7.26000.0.exe) from the link below USB20PCCam_5.7.26000.0.exe

cam_manager

the device will be detected in the device manager

To display the image i used the VLC Mediaplayer, available from http://www.videolan.org. Open the player and use the function “CTRL + C” open device. Set the mode to “Direct Show”, device to “USB2.0 PC Camera (SN9C201)” and the audio to “None”, this step is mandatory or it will not work correctly!
